WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL STRAND OF VINTAGE MERCURY GLASS BEAD CHRISTMAS TREE GARLAND. What beautiful old glass beads. These would be perfect for your Vintage design tree. Very unusual style and design. Rich, vibrant coloration, in shades of gold and silver. There are three different types of beads on this strand. There are the extra large single gold colored beads that measure about 3/4" each, extra large double tube shaped, silver colored beads, that measure about 3/4" each, and the large single gold colored beads, that measure about 1/2" each. Again, a very unusual strand. The beads are all in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. We have tried to remove any damaged or broken beads, so they are ready to be used and enjoyed. This lovely strand measures about 73" long, has a cardboard square and a metal twist tie at each end. Each glass bead was hand blown in countries such as Germany, Czechoslovakia or Japan after WW II. Imports into the US then began in the late 1940's, into the 1950's. For more information and history on vintage Christmas items, visit The Golden Glow of Christmas Past web site. What a great addition for your Christmas Holiday collection!!!!!
